As part of my pandemic shopping, I wanted to get some new artwork. One of my orders was a purchase that I made on Etsy from an artist that I’ve followed for a while now. I’ve you’re not already in the know, please allow me to introduce you to Janet Hill.
I want to live in her paintings! They depict a mix of style and beauty reminiscent of a Slim Aarons photo shoot. Slim once said he photographed “attractive people who were doing attractive things in attractive places.”
The scenes give off a vintage vibe, reminiscent of a 1940’s to 1960’s socialite lifestyle. The women are elegant, the decor is refined and the destinations are dreamy. One thing that you don’t often see in vintage glamour is diverse representation. That is where Janet Hill’s artwork is different. I love that she shows a lot of diversity in her paintings. This is important to me. I have a multi-racial family and it is important for my children to see beautiful women of all skin tones represented in the artwork displayed in our home.
Here are the prints that I purchased. The first is “Champagne Shack” (I love me some sparkles). I framed it in a gold bamboo frame and it hangs above my bar cart.
The next is “Frenchie“. This is a small square print, which fits perfectly on this very small space next to the doorway just before entering my master bath. The frame is from Target.
I bought “Hummingbirds” for my daughter. This will hang in her boudoir, once we get it framed.
And, last but not least is “The Disappearance of Lonnie Lightfoot“, which I haven’t yet hung, but it will go somewhere in my boudoir.
